2010/365/26 Turn the Machines Off

But before that, it might be 20 years. This morning, I left the laptop closed, the phone off, as I read Vannevar Bush’s seminal 1945 essay As We May Think— but one essay in the New Media Reader.

This is because I am remotely participating in Gardner Campbell’s New Media Faculty Development Seminar at Baylor. We devised a way for an audience larger than his group could particpate- by doing the same readings and engaging in online activities together with the Baylor group.
